Today, Mother Earth Brewing announced that they have partnered with Guiffre Distributing Company to start selling a selection of their products in the Northern Virginia market. Distribution begins in early September, 2013 and will include Arlington and Fairfax County including the cities of Falls Church, City of Alexandria, City of Fairfax, and all military installations within or adjacent to this territory.
The expansion of their sales territory was carefully considered, according to E. Trent Mooring, Mother Earth Brewing President and Co-Founder. Mooring remarked, “We’ve been approached by a lot of distributors in many different states but felt the Northern Virginia market was a good strategic move based on the growth we have had in neighboring Washington, D.C.”
Release parties and other promotional events will begin in September and take place at various locations in and around the northern Virginia area. Initially, Endless River Kolsch, Weeping Willow Wit, Sisters of the Moon IPA, Dark Cloud Dunkel, and Fall Seasonal, Old Neighborhood will be offered for sale in six-pack bottles and on draft.
Co-Founder, Stephen Hill also commented, “After living in Northern Virginia many years ago, I know the importance of the market. The transient people that come and go through the area will be great advocates for our brand as we continue to expand.”
Mother Earth Brewing was founded by Stephen Hill and Trent Mooring in 2008. Soon after, they added Brew Master, Josh D. Brewer to the team and within months, an old downtown building was repurposed into a brewery. Mother Earth Brewing began to bottle and keg their beer in October of 2009. Today, just over three and half years after production of their first batch of beer, Mother Earth Brewing counts on a team of fifteen people to keep up with production. Mother Earth Brewing enjoys over 3,000 accounts, and can be found in bars, restaurants, supermarkets and specialty stores across North Carolina, Georgia, and Washington, DC. Mother Earth Brewing is the first Gold L.E.E.D. ® certified production brewery in the United States. More information can be found at www.motherearthbrewing.com.
